What is Campus Carriers?
Campus Carriers is a service for students that makes the moving and summer storage process easy and affordable. Students registered with Campus Carriers will have their belongings picked up from their residence hall room, stored for the summer, and delivered to their new address, on or off campus, before the start of the quarter they return.
What services are offered?
Campus Carriers provides packing materials, pick up of belongings directly from residence hall rooms, storage for the duration of the summer (or longer) as well as delivery to the student’s new location on or off campus. Many students will begin with our Five Box Starter package starting them with five boxes of storage space as well as packing tape and the ability to add additional oversized items such as mini-fridges, microwaves, televisions, etc. at an additional cost. Those students looking to start from scratch and choose all of their items individually can do so as well.
I live off-campus now, can I sign-up for the Campus Carriers service?
Unfortunately, we are unable to serve students currently living off campus. However, off campus delivery is available to current campus residents should they not be returning to live on campus.
Will my belongings be insured with Campus Carriers?
Yes. At no extra cost to you, Campus Carriers insures the personal belongings of our customers for the full period of time that they are in transit and storage with us. You will indicate the total value of the items being stored with Campus Carriers during the reservation process. Total value declared may not exceed $1,500 and can be updated from your account section when you log in at the Campus Carriers website. Please review the Terms and Conditions for additional information and restrictions regarding insurance.
What does the price include?
All of our prices include boxes and packing tape distribution (if applicable), pick up of packed belongings directly from residence hall rooms, insurance, secure storage for the duration of the summer, and delivery to your new address on campus in the fall. Off-campus deliveries must be within 5 miles of campus and are assessed a fee of $25. Note that none of our pricing is a monthly fee but rather an all-inclusive price unless otherwise stated.
What can I do when logged into the Campus Carriers website?
After you have reserved space with Campus Carriers, you will be able to login and access your account using the student email address you registered with and the password you created during the registration process. From within your account, you will be able to update your service dates and times, add additional boxes, packing materials, or oversized items to your reservation, update your insurance amount, contact info, delivery information, and more.
Will I be refunded for unused boxes or items that I end up not storing for the summer?
Unused boxes will be taken back at the time of pick up and our staff will adjust your Pick Up Receipt. Any items that are not picked up by our staff will also be noted on your receipt. When our Billing Department receives your receipt they will issue any refunds back to your initial credit or debit card. Due to the amount of customers and the amount of changes that are often made, please allow up to 30 days from the end of finals week to see any credits to your credit or debit card. If you have any questions regarding refunds please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

What happens if I reserve the Five Box Starter package and discover I don't need as many boxes?
No problem. Use as many boxes as you need and if it ends up being less than what you reserved, we'll refund you the difference between what you paid and what the cost would have been had you reserved less. The same goes for oversized items. You will only ultimately pay for the items that we pick up and store. Your reservation is adjusted at the time of your pick up and billed or refunded accordingly.
